Top 5

Northeast of Alcúdia

1. Platja des Coll Baix

Platja des Coll Baix is ​​a pebble beach located in the nature reserve on the northern coast of Mallorca. It’s a great little hike, well worth the effort.

This 220 meters long and 50 meters wide remote beach has everything you are looking for (except for powdery sand): Rock formations, crystal clear water, and great snorkeling spots.

Due to the rather difficult accessibility, Platja des Coll Baix is ​​only rarely visited. This fantastic beach is the destination of some hikers, but also private and excursion boats.

A bumpy road will lead you to an open parking spot in the woods, from where you have to hike the south trail to Talaia d’Alcúdia and then follow the signs to Coll Baix. A stunning 40-minute climb. Sturdy shoes and a backpack are highly recommended.

Bring water and snacks, and don’t forget sunscreen if you plan to stay the rest of the day.

  • Remote beach

  • Only accessible on foot or by boat

  • Crystal, clear water

  • Fantastic view

  • Great for snorkeling

5. SA CALOBRA & THE TORRENT DE PAREIS

Sa Calobra is more of an attraction than the perfectly relaxing dream beach. The crowded pebble/sand beach is situated at the end of a gorge made by the Torrent de Pareis. It is one of the most famous spots on the island, has inspired many artists and has been featured in movies, such as Cloud Atlas.

The tiny beach, which lies between high cliffs is only 30 meters by 15 meters. It’s a lovely spot, but a victim of tourism with busses full of visitors during the summer time.

The journey up and down the 12km long serpentine road is beautiful but challenging, with coaches that block entire road sections and ambitious cyclists with a bucket list.

  • Famous spot on the island

  • Very touristic

  • Serpentine road to get there
